Life Lately

My last blog post here on Happy Interior Blog was published more than a month ago. What happened to me and my blogging routine? I wonder myself. But life lately has been a rollercoaster – many projects, also for Urban Jungle Bloggers, travels, and my own personal life. I have become more and more focused on myself. I felt I need more time for myself – going regularly to the gym, to pottery classes, cooking and baking at home, going out with friends. All of the things I love to do but I had neglected for many years.

Life lately is good. It is very good. It is packed and full but I enjoy it. I do thing that I love. Those of you who follow me on Instagram have a more regular insight into my life. People keep asking me how do you find time for all of this. But time is at our hands if we organize things and if we pursue what we love. Somehow everything seems to fit into a full day. Alas, the blog has suffered a bit I admit! But I am back and I will definitely try to be a more regular blogger again.

I have a few interesting and hopefully inspiring projects for you in the pipeline. I will soon share a brand new home story with you. It is the super inspiring home of my friend Ben here in Munich. You might remember the story I did about his garden shed? Now if you liked that, wait till you see his home!!

Then I will tell you something about my hunt for vintage furniture and share one of my favorite sources. As well as my latest vintage furniture addition of course! I will also share a few new updates in my bedroom and – not to forget – there will be something about amazing Australian planters. Yup, all the way from Australia! So stay tuned, there’s lots to come here on Happy Interior Blog! Thank you for bearing with me, friends! Yours truly!

P.S. These are a few pictures from my kitchen and balcony taken by my friend Kinga Cich a little while ago. Hope you like them as much as I do. And for the record: That amazing buffalo leather shopper is by Belgian designer Bea Mombaers for one of my favorite brands for planters: Serax.

This blog post has been brought to you in collaboration with Serax. As always all opinions and photos are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands who support this blog!

    I think what you’re doing is great Igor, we all need to take time away for ourselves sometimes, more often than not it’s ourselves that we neglect when we’re caught up in the day-to-day. I love that you’re taking pottery classes and creating such a beautiful home. You look WELL on it! xx

      Thank you Tiff!! I felt like I really needed that time. It’s like I had neglected it over the past six years for the sake of the blog and work and all. But I want to be more creative, to take care of myself, my body, my health, my friends. I want to cook and bake, listen to music or just sit around or take care of my plants withouth the ongoing pressure of doing emails, writing blog post after blog post, discussing projects. So yeah, it is a bit more quiet here but sometimes that’s the key to a good life…

    Hallo Igor, mein Vater sagt immer “Die Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude”. Und ich finde er hat recht! Wir sind es gewohnt immer schnell Informationen, Neuigkeiten, neue Inspirationen, neues “Futter” zu bekommen. Das setzt uns alle unter Druck, es tötet die Kreativität, denn Kreativität braucht Zeit, Muße, ja sogar Langeweile. In diesen Phasen des vermeintlichen “Nichtstuns” entstehen nun mal die besten Ideen.
    Mir sind Blogbeiträge lieber, die in Ruhe entstehen. Genauso in Ruhe möchte ich sie auch lesen, nicht unterwegs, an der Ampel oder der Supermarktkasse… Ein mit Leidenschaft verfasster Artikel hat es verdient, das man sich Zeit für ihn nimmt. Die neue Idee oder Inspiration, die man dadurch bekommt, kann nachwirken und muss nicht sofort durch wieder etwas Neues überlagert werden. Das Maß zu finden ist in der digitalen Welt nicht ganz leicht, aber muss doch möglich sein.
    Ich freue mich jedenfalls auf Deine Homestory an der Du arbeitest! Liebe Grüße! Larissa

      Lieben Dank Larissa! Du sprichst mir aus der Seele! Ich finde, dass es genau da hin gehen muss. Weg vom Fast Content (quasi sowas wie Fast Food) hin zu Inhalten, die wirklich mit Muße und Bedacht entstehen. Und ja, ich brauche auch diese Auszeit und auch das süße Nichtstun, um wieder Antrieb und Kreativität zu finden. Manchmal ist das wirklich einfach nur ein Kaffee auf dem Balkon in Ruhe – ohne den Druck zu verspüren, gleich was schreiben zu müssen für den Blog. Ich habe die anstehende Home Story schon so lange geplant und vorbereitet, ich hoffe wirklich, dass sie toll wird und alle Leser inspiriert. Ich bin jedenfalls schon total inspiriert vom Shooting nach Hause gekommen…
